4.0 out of 5 stars From One of The Game's Greatest 18 July 2003
By rodboomboom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Fascinating observations on all aspects of the game, from equipment to course design to swing thoughts, to personal remebrances.
Much is out of touch with modern game, such as his advice to always wear "braces" rather than a belt, and always wear a coat. Club advice and ball of course are not the modern technology.
However, all is enjoyable and makes for good reading. His favorate course: St. Royal at St. George's. Amazing, since this very week the Open is there.
Final words so good: "Another spring is breaking brightly, and the golf that is before each of us promises to be as momentous and soul-satisfying as any that has gone before us."

4.0 out of 5 stars Legend 16 Nov. 2005
By Maarten V - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Harry Vardon was a true gentleman (Jersey) and absolute nr 1 over an enormous era.

6 British Opens (more than anyone) the latest in his fourties (beating in numbers Morris snr/jnr and Willie Park, Taylor, Hagen etc), he even won one coughing up blood in between rounds from the Tuberculosis.

He might have collected more mayors than Nicklaus did in his time (travelling and championships permitting)

I liked his excellent tips on Matchplay. Never dispair is his credo, a very good one.

Check out the stone at the Royal Jersey club where the "hut" of his parents used to be (they were removed when the club was laid).

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Golfer 18 Sept. 2010
By Donald Nestor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First let me say that I purchased this book for my brother, who is a professional writer and golfer and he has told me that the book was excellent because it imparted wisdom that he was unaware of in the golfing realm. He mentioned to me that he would highly recommend this book to any serious minded golfer and he is basing some of his work and golf game on this autobiography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misprint 12 Mar. 2005
By Shavology - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The editor incorrectly states the number of times Harry Vardon won the British Open. His record of 6 British Open Victories, not 5, still stands to this day. From a historical point of view, this book is a must read for any golf enthusiast.
5.0 out of 5 stars Buy a piece of history 8 Oct. 2015
By Al Nunez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Am absolutely loving it. It is real history and it is great fun figuring out what a cleek or niblick is but the real reason to get the book is to see how a winner thinks. I he can inspire Francis Ouimet to win the US Open, he can inspire you to play better. Lots of good tips. Buy a piece of history.
